los angeles and san francisco to new york and boston. in general the fares for business class about 50% higher than coach, and it makes up about 11% of the seats on flights making those runs. well, united is now offering live flat seats for its business class in certain transcontinental routes. they just started it this week from los angeles to new york. the flights will have fewer business and first class seats going from about 36 down to 28 just lie flat seats. why are the airlines doing this? this comes down to trying to have that premium service between the coasts so they can increase revenue. this is all about getting more money from those higher paying passengers. transcontinental premium service is targeting in specific corporate customers in industries like financial services and the entertainment industry who will pay for the lie flat seats. >> those industries pay for premium cabin seats. that's the battle. that's where the profit is, and that's who the big three airlines, united, delta, and american, are battling it out. it will be interesting to see who wins long term. >> a

is bringing back the ps service on flights between the two hubs in los angeles and san francisco and the hub at jfk new york. these are live seats in business flats. united has stripped out and used fewer seats for the business class in hopes of getting more revenue. what are we seeing with the airlines? all of them are moving in this direction. they're adding premium service because they're targtding corporate customers in the entertainment industry, financial services, industries that will pay for that extra service. >> united will have fewer premium cabinet seats in the new configuration. delta has only 16 premium cabin seats. american's configuration is unknown. they are trying to right size the number of seats with the number of people who will pay for it. >> and hopefully for the airlines more of a profit yield per airline. this is at a six-year high. it's up again today. most stocks moving higher today. we're going to see this on a number of routes wean the west coast and east coast. >> phil lebeau, thank you for that story. now to shares of fedex. brandon is a transportation expert t
recovery for blackberry's business is, and jim joinings us now from san francisco. the price target is their 6 a share. always good to see you. you never bought into the hype of the z10 from the get go. what do you see in terms of sales. >> the stock has been going up and it's been up year to date and a lot of hype around the company and we found that it's extremely difficult because the competitive nature seems to be getting more and more fierce. we found the initial launch to be disappointing. it was good in europe and good in canada, but in the united states most of the store reps weren't even trained and most of the sell through was not what people were expecting. >> and that echoes what goldman saying they did channel checks of 20 looks and found the spend wasn't there in terms of promotion and the positioning wasn't there in the stores. at the same time, jim, when you were thinking about black berry is you're thinking of a comeback. if blackberry simply sold z10s or q10s to existing users could that be enough to put blackberry on the path to recovery here? >> that's if their p
